forward and he's allowed the u.n. security council, russia and china to determine our policy. all these are acts of weaknesses as opposed to making clear and we haven't worked closely with our allies as evidence by the recent u.n. meeting when the president had time for whoopi goldberg but couldn't meet with netanyahu. >> one of the criticisms, this appears to be management of the arab spring. that is a big part. does governor romney think it was a mistake to push mubarak out? >> what he has said is that we have forces that are of extre extremism and forces of moderation an we should be aligned and help those forces. a difference in egypt is one that's on the table today. governor romney says we should have conditions. we shouldn't write off a billion dollar debt. >> but going back to mubarak. was that a mistake? does governor romney believe that's a mistake? >> how it was handled was a mistake. >> pushing mubarak out was a mistake? >> let me give you the answer. first of all, for two years, president obama cut support of u.s. assistance for democracy and civil society in egypt, s

and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
. again, this contradicts directly what was said by the u.n. ambassador, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. and it contradicts essentially what the administration had been saying for five days after we reported that intelligence officials had within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack. this comes ahead of committee hearing tomorrow on capitol hill where a house oversight committee will start calling witnesses. they have uncovered a full list of some 230 security incidents that happened in the year before. on the consulate. and the area around the consulate. in libya. and one of the congressman who just got back from libya talked about that today. and state department response. >> twice in the lead up to this attack on 9/11 compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british ambassador had an assassination attempt. we were moving in 9/11 and now the white house wants to say we had no direct information. no actionable intelligence. are you kidding me? where else in the world was the consulate bombed twice? >> i'm not going in timeline details what we had when and whe
information we have at that time. >> sreenivasan: clinton also defended u.n. ambassador susan rice, who initially said the attack started with a protest against an anti-islamic video. u.s. authorities now believe computer hackers based in iran carried out cyber-attacks on persian gulf oil and gas companies over the summer. the attacks crippled 30,000 computers at major companies in saudi arabia and qatar. and defense secretary leon panetta warned thursday of a possible "cyber pearl harbor". he promised "decisive action" to meet any threat. russia insisted today that a syrian airliner was carrying legal cargo when it was forced to land in turkey this week. foreign minister sergei lavrov said the shipment consisted of russian radar parts, but no weapons. turkish descriptions have ranged from ammunition to missile parts that the syrian government meant to use against rebels. an outbreak of fungal meningitis has now spread to dozen u.s. states. the centers for disease control reported today that 184 cases have been confirmed, as a result of tainted steroid injections. 14 people have died. f
at the u.n.? >> when mitt romney left the campaign for exhaustion, barack obama was putting in 19 hour days. jenna: hold on a second. brad and sean, i think, i think we've -- >> that is ridiculous, sean. that is insulting. jenna: if you're a presidential fund raise and you also can't be tired? is that what you're saying. >> that is what sean is suggesting. >> i think there is a difference --. jenna: if you will, brad, talk about these priorities. one of the messages that seems to becoming out of all this talk about the debate is that the president did not prioritize the practice and preparedness you need to enter into the debate. that is why he didn't look as good as some might expect. how do you answer the criticism the president did not look prepared? >> i think if you go back and look at his answers i think he certainly looked he certainly looked prepared. mitt romney had sharper and more energetic performance. it was, as robert gibbs said a performance. it is easy to do well in a debate when you're not willing to confront your own policies honestly. he lied about his tax plan. he lied a
with the fact in libya we overthrew qaddafi and probably intended to all along even though the u.n. resolution just talked about protecting libyan civilians a year ago. with syria we're obviously at a fundamental impasse on how to handle did dilemma. what you're seeing a bit of frustration, vladmir putin a proud man and obviously back in the presidency doesn't think he needs american money. you know he is probably right at one level. idea of giving foreign aid to russia is counterintuitive given how well russia's petroleum sector is doing at this point. so it is not all crazy but it does cause some concern given that it seems to have a little bit of spite behind it as well. jenna: looking at just the overall context as you mentioned because a couple weeks ago i think it was about a week and a half ago, we learned certain u.s. aid organizations operating inside the country are essentially getting kicked out. they can't operate in the country anymore. because we're on the eve of this vice-presidential debate and we've seen back and forth between the president and governor romney on russia we wan
few weeks, and they sent the u.n. ambassador got to say that this is because of a protest and youtube video. it took the president two weeks to acknowledge that this is a terrorist attack. he went to the u.n. and in his speech, he said six times he talked about the youtube video. look, if we are hit by terrorists, will call up what it is, a terrorist attack. our ambassador in paris has a marine detachment regarding him. should we have it very detachment regarding our benghazi, please renew there was an al qaeda with arms? this is becoming more troubling by the day. >> all right. rachel, who won that exchange quick >> one thing who won the debate and i think that was martha raddatz. a very aggressive moderator. didn't interrupt, but kept them on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that ex
established at the u.n. which gets to the point you made, bill, about the fact it's a deeply seated value in a lot of culture. we go here and to julie. >> thank you for your insightful presentation. >> your name. >> [inaudible] and my question goes to mr. mr. hisham melhem. said that the muslim brotherhood is probusiness and socially conservative if i recall correctly. what where does it exactly place the next administration here in the u.s. and american perception as to how they actually perceive the muslim brotherhood or the freedom and justice party and specifically as far as being a unique element -- such in the family or islamist as you put it and as your emphasis it is politics and economic not necessarily religion and culture. thank you. >> maybe the republican vote piers. you can hand the microphone right in the -- thank you. my question for doctor, i'm wondering how much being informed -- have you been able to look at responses the difference between sophisticated an novemberist when you provide more information, for instance, instead of talking about egypt's role and stability o
days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going to find is these bits and pieces are going to come out. again i think we're both troubled by some of the things we saw and unfold. >> reporter: the house oversight committee hearing on the benghazi attacks gets underway tomorrow at noon. a lot of people will be watching, martha. martha: there is sort of a drip, drip, drip effect to this story. and some lawmakers are still questioning what the administration itself knew before these attacks. >> reporter: you know congressman jason chaffetz of utah just returned from benghazi. early this morning on fox he pointed out some obvious warning signs that preceded the attack. >> twice in the lead-up to their attack on 9/11, our compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british am
as this happened who did they send on the sunday talk shows? the u.n. ambassador. i have no doubt in my mind that clearly as these things are happening the white house is involved. when you have terrorist-type activities the white house is involved. no doubt about that. megyn: it many supposition. it's not that somebody has leaked that to you and you have seen a document. >> what you will see as early as today as as late as tomorrow, official on the ground requesting more materials. there were two bomb cans of been gassive our facility. i'm not aware of anywhere else in the world where our physical facility was actually bombed and it was bombed twice. you had the british ambassador, there was an assassination attempt. and coming up on 9/11 the white house says there was no actionable intelligence that there may be problems in benghazi? megyn: why would we do that? you have got whistleblowers telling you the requests for increases security were being made to the state department and you say they were not only told no, but that security was reduced. why would we do that? >> my personal belief,
on in egypt, which was a protest. so that information took a couple days to clear. >> no, the u.n. secretary, ambassador rice, also talked about -- >> susan rice has a vulnerability here because she was doing that a couple of days into this and, you know, they've cited a cia analysis report which, you know, actually says there was a protest. a lot of people got the information wrong. part of the problem is at the root of your question, which is this needs to be an investigation into the facts and what it's come to is a debate on politics in a presidential election. >> john miller, thanks, john. >>> new poll numbers show just how much the presidential race has turned around in the past week. the latest gallup tracking poll shows 49% of likely voters favor mitt romney and 47% support president obama and two other polls from the key state of ohio shows the candidates are effectively tied. one of them shows romney ahead by one point and the other the president leads by 4. both men campaigned in ohio tuesday. jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in akron. good morning, jan. >> reporter: w
supporter of the u.n., albert gore sr. gore's father. and all of these characters by the way were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy. and the longest -- and robert byrd had 100% rating from naral pro-choice america. so do not believe the lie that these were conservative democrats who were waiting for a wink from nixon to become republicans. it was only one in 18 liberal democratic segregationists who became republican. that was strom thurmond and he's the only one whose name you know. just one more point on the southern strategy. this is -- this lie is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it were one state. no, the outer southern states and the dixiecrat states in the middle. republicans -- and the southern strategy is this idea that republicans had a secretly appealed to the democratic segregationists and the dixiecrats and suddenly we swept the south. no. republicans swept the south when the dixiecrats died out. something that's provable by looking at the history. republicans had been winning the outer southern states. texas. tennessee. kentucky. west virginia. virginia. north
of the attack provided on "meet the press" by u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice on september 16th, five days after the incident took place. >> putting together the best information that we have available to us today. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> today congress is set to hold a hearing on the attack. it's expected to focus on potential security lapses at the compound and whether the administration originally down-played the link to terrorist elements. >> in "newsweek" this week we're talking about susan rice coming under fire. it seems, though, this story continues to evolve. the white house can't get the story straight. at first it was the video. then it was a spontaneous demonstration, and then it was a terror plot. now
of the united states, would you back up israel? >> we have israel's back, both at the u.n., but also militarily. i would anticipate that if i'm president, the actions of israel would not come as a surprise to me. but i would meet with prime minister netanyahu, i would speak with him, i've indicated that my first trip as president would be to israel. so what would happen there would not be something that would be a shock to me. but i can tell you this, that the crippling sanctions do have an impact. they're having an impact on iran's economy right now. they will have an impact on the public there in iran. and there's great hope and real prospects for dissuading iran from taking a path that leads into a nuclear setting. but this is going to require real strength on the part of america and it's also going to require us showing no daylight between ourselves and israel. we're going to have iran realize that they can't play one-off against each other. that we're absolutely committed to a world that does not include a nuclear capable iran. >> let's move to issue number one here on the united states, t
democrats. they were liberal democrats. j. william fullbright. bill clinton's mentor. big supporter of the u.n.. albert gore sr., al gore's father and all of these characters, were ferocious opponents of joe mccarthy's. robert byrd had 100% rating from pro choice america. don't believe the lie these were conservative democrats waiting for a wink from nixon to become republicans. there was only one of about 18 liberal democratic segregationists that eventually became a republican. that was strom thurmond. he's the only one whose name you know. just one more point on the southern strategy this lie is pulled off by describing the entire south as if it were one state. no, there are the outer southern states and the dixie craft states in the middle. i guess i should say the southern strategy is this idea that republicans secretly appealed the democratic segregation for the dixie kratz and suddenly we swept the south. republicans of the south when the dixiecrats died out, something that's proveable by looking at the history, republicans were winning the outer southern states, texas, tennessee, kentu
